You may think that the style of the movie is something you needn’t think about till after the day when the editing begins, but you’d be wrong.


Videographers will work with the raw footage of the day to produce the movie of your dreams, but unless the raw footage is within keeping of the style that you prefer, then they won’t be able to achieve it.


Videographers will rarely classify themselves into one style category or another and most will tell you that they can shoot in whatever style you prefer. This may well be true, but it is always worthwhile knowing just what to look out for style-wise to help you differentiate between cameramen. Each videographer will have a style they prefer to shoot in, whether they admit it or not!


Let's now take a look at the two main style options open to couples.



Think about the Charles and Diana wedding, set it to music, and you won’t be far wrong. The Classic or Formal videographer will use wide angled sweeping shots capturing all the detail and produce a product that is fit for worldwide distribution. This ‘Hollywood’ style of filming is the most popular format, and really is like a movie that you would sit down and watch with friends, except you are the star! Formal videos can often incorporate footage from outside the day – the Bride and Groom before the day, the couple discussing their honeymoon etc. as well as childhood photographs, newspaper headlines etc. The whole thing is often accompanied by a musical score. For some, this style can seem a bit stuffy and perhaps a little false, whilst others will love the professional element and think that the style only enhances the memories. Whatever your opinion of it, you must admit that it the final result is stunning.
